. we have francois hollande today speaking to the eu parliament. he's going to lay out his vision for the eu against that economic back drop. >> isn't it amazing? we come into the week yesterday with everyone still talking. you have that great barons cover, you come in, just get the risk trade massively off. and the question for today and the rest of the week is frankly whether that's a bump in the road or the start of a down trend. >> you have the front cover, these are all good contra indicators. >> sorry, media friends. but this is not exactly the best of -- >> we always have timing. on today's show, we're in zurich where we hear from the ceo of ubs about the group's outlook. the swiss bank won to a loss in the fourth quarter. >> and is we'll head out to california for a look at the next offer. it's due to be released later today. we'll be live in madrid as the spanish prime minister's party pledges to fight corruption allegations that have prompted calls for his resition naz. >> and for its to earn its annual forecast on a weaker yen, we have in-depth analysis at 10:40 cet. be
. we have the composite eu gdp number, down 0.6% quarter on quarter. that's what we're looking for and this comes after a weaker than expected german number today, as well. to the extent we talked, italy contracted 0.9%, worse than expected. and revisions to france suggested that they already had a recession in the first and second quarter of 2012, as well. ur low/dollar, just hitting the lows of the session at 133.40. kelly. >> ross, let's slip through the u.s. markets. we are looking for the dow to shed about 20 points from the open. the nasdaq, dow and s&p headed lower. yesterday, we did see a lot of the european indexes hitting intraday highs. china, taiwan, vietnam still closed to celebrate the lunar new year. the nikkei has been the big mover overnight. the ftse 100 after hit ago five-year high yesterday, weaker towards the close today. gig up about a rt yeaher of 1%. interestingly, we're seeing weaker sterling and higher bond yields in the uk. not necessarily the best sign of internal dynamics for britain. germany gdp figures are down. the cac 40 down only about 0.1% tod
a warhead small enough to fit on a long range missile. the eu secured council called an emergency meeting. chery joins us now from seoul. can you tell us first of all what the general reaction has been there and a lot bit about the impact of the economy. we're watching, for example, the south korea and won take a hit this morning. >> well within not much of a reaction on the kospi. it did end down just about 0.26% here. but i wouldn't say it's a big tumble and it is korean won gained. i think by now investors have learned that north korea related tensions and developments, geopolitical issues like this have had impact on the korean market. so that explains the absence of such strong reaction on the stock market. but the latest that we have on this development is that we have china's reaction to north korea's nuclear tests, as well. china's foreign ministry statement goes that it is china's firm stance to realize nonnuclearization for the korean peninsula and prevent a nuclear proliferation and maintain peace and stability in northeast asia. remember, china is north korea's probably one an
. we have the eu rising starts, the outstanding british film. but in the major categories, clearly people do look to the bafta the way same they would look to the gloelden gloep globes to see how things were going. "argo" is seen by everybody as a pack leader. there is a strange absence there on best director. whoever wins best director will be remembered as having won in the year that the most significant contender wasn't nominated. >> why isn't he nominated? >> who knows. who knows. i think we got it right, but who knows why he wasn't. one reason is because what they've done with the oscars now is increased the best film from five up to ten. now you have i think it's nine nominations this year. of course you're going to get a mismatch because there aren't the same number of films that there were directed. >> mark, good to see you. thanks so much, indeed. >> thanks for coming by. >> always a very good turn out, as well. >> i still think silver linings with a different name would have done so well. >>> anyway, the clearing up is occurring after nemo. what impact will this have on r
the uncertainty created by the u.k. e.u. referendum and scottish referendum on independence. there's a lot of negatives surrounding sterling now. i think it has further to fall. >> we'll leave it. there we want to get your thoughts on employment, as well. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "worldwide exchange." let's go straight to a look at what's happening with sterling. we have seen it drop below the 154 level. bank offen land minutes just -- of england minutes just showing fisher and miles would have liked to see a 25 billion pound increase in the size of the quantitative easing program. also comes as we learn that the u.k. unemployment rate held at 7.8%. slightly better than expected drop in jobless claims. average earnings growth remains weak. here's what's happening across the gilt curve. yields coming in at 2.4%. and james, at least the gilt yield is coming in. i suppose the markets would be most worried if the opposite happened, if it were to push out here. it's interesting to hear the bank of england say they think pound appreciation is expansionary. perhaps they look at th
of the bulge names in part because of the eu risk is higher in those. how serious do you take a day like today on that front? >> well, our biggest concern really is the continued unstable nature of greece. i think spain and italy will be fine as long as greece doesn't create a chain reaction, which i think it will. and i'm still very concerned about what is going on there. but as you guys pointed out, you know, you came into early 10, early 11, early 12 and felt good, trends were good and the eu kind of put the kibosh on ceo confidence and capital markets activity. i'm concerned about that. >> you seem less worried. >> we're more worried about the u.s. economy. i think what we're seeing now in the marketplace makes sense. we had the megabanks lead the rally late last year. we recently have switched to the regional banks outperforming the megabanks and now we're getting that normal consolidation period which is to be expected. look at the ten-year treasury yield, that's what we say. if above ten for first quarter -- above 2% for first quarter, then earnings estimates will probably go higher. wh
. >> now we go into a full eu heads of state summit. it will be interesting to see if that theory about the euro gains further traction. >> let's roll out the red carpet and watch for the arrivals. thanks, simon. let's get to rick santelli in chicago, where we're still talking about your punch bowl this morning, rick. >>> i'll tell you what, it never ceases to amaze me where somebody like mr. rubin could say nobody could have nope, and yet the government singles out s&p. there's more to this story, or maybe there isn't. like i said, you can't fight city hall. one guy always fighting the battle keeping us informed about what may or may not be happening in europe is mark brand, southwest securities. mark, you were just listening to mr. draghi, and many of your comments, along with many traders on this floor, everyone was wondering when a big salvo to lower the value of the euro will be emanating from europe to keep up with the japanese. has that day arrived? >> no, the day hasn't arrived ye. i'll tell you what has arrived. the way the eu works with the 17 people and the 17 countries in th
some of the things necessary to live up to their commitment to the eu. does this throw a wrench into the works? >> i think we should be thinking about it. the somewhat untold story is that -- >> you heard of this guy before this? >> absolutely. >> was he funny. >> he's funny. it would be a little bit like -- >> jackie mason? >> no -- >> seinfeld. >> robin williams or somebody. he was big in the '80s this guy. he also has been a big part of the political satire, all the rest of it. very, very bright guy. but you know, it's almost an a listic party. it's july real just truly a protest vote. to my knowledge it's gotten over 25% of the vote, the latest thing i've seen. monti is the best of the best. i honestly believe that is one of the, you know, on democracies it's easier to give stuff away. >> two years ago he had just started and i asked why are these pictures of monti in a beach chair. and they all said send monti to the beach. that was two years ago. >> yeah, he's only been in there a group -- grillo is moving. five-star movement is only three years old. it's a very organized,
